As popular as Halloween is though (especially with kids), we know that they want to watch some scary Halloween-themed movies just like we do, and that's why we decided to do a Family Friendly Horror list. There are actually plenty of G and PG movies out there that allow even the youngest Horror fans to celebrate Halloween without causing them to have nightmares for weeks.
The kids deserve something “scary” to watch at Halloween time too!
- Most of the movies on this list are geared towards younger kids.
- As "kid-friendly" as everything on this list is, movies like The Lady in White, Something Wicked This Way Comes, Vikaren, and The Watcher in the Woods are genuinely scary, and may prove to be too intense for some kids.
- The Honorable Mention section includes 6 movies, that while being kid-friendly, are also a bit more mature than the rest of the movies on the list. They're definitely for more mature kids.
If you and the family are in the mood to watch a quality Family Friendly Horror flick together, then any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, you almost have to watch It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and The Nightmare Before Christmas every year at Halloween, but then again all of the movies below bring their own unique and kid-friendly vision to the Horror Genre, so why not just enjoy them all!
*Most of the links go to Amazon so that you can stream or grab yourself a copy of the movies; or in the case of some of the older & more obscure titles, IMDB, because they simply aren't available to stream or purchase.
